This Wednesday, February the 8th, with the help of our dear teacher Beatriz, we are going to visit Belém. We will have the amazing opportunity to discover the history about all that historical part of Lisbon, in fact we will visit the Belém Tower, the Monastery of Jerónimos and  Praça do Império. As you may know this places are all part of the UNESCO heritage. We will have the possibility to understand the particular traits of the manueline style in the Belém Tower and inside the Monastery of Jerónimos. Teacher Beatriz will tell us about the great exhibition of 1940 in Praça do Império, done in order to commemorate the Portuguese Empire.
Finally at the end of our tour we will have the chance to eat the original Pastéis de Belém in the place in which they were born. During all the time spent together you will have the opportunity to practice your Portuguese language knowledge, having moreover the chance to meet the other students of the school.

Our meeting point will be Wednesday, February the 8th, in front of the entrance of the Monastery of Jerónimos at 3.30 pm. For who would like to come with us the meeting point will be at 2.30 pm at school (Rua dos Duradores).
